young leader kim jong-un domestically. >> absolutely. they have been trying since 1998 to launch a long-range missile and they failed in the previous four attempts. they succeeded in this. it's not a rocket that can deliver a major warhead. there are marriajor hurdles to >> they have done in north korea where a lot of people are starving what south korea has been unable to do. >> by choice, actually. >> they haven't launched a satellite into orbit. >> south korea has not. this will undoubtedly spur competition with south korea. you'll see that. you'll probably see south korea respond with more batteries and japan will probably already do that. you have heard that we need to spend more. we spend $10 million a year already on a missile system. it has international ramifications that are going to destabilize. this is why the security council is condemning the move. >> so how much of a real threat to the united states, whether hawaii or the west coast, is this? >> we are not threatened any more today than we were yesterday. let me give you one example. iran put a satellite in orbit in 2009.
north korea in recent months has a new leader kim the younger we have called him. the son of kim jong ilment long-time dictator there but now in a defiant move against the rest of the world, the north koreans have fired a long range missile. what happened to it? we don't yet know. it's a busy night in the fox newsroom. we will keep you updated on breaks in o'reilly. now here he is. >> bill: bill -- big trouble in michigan. give employees the option not to join a union. president obama doesn't like that at all. >> what we shouldn't be doing is your rights to bargain for better wages. we shouldn't do that. these so-called right-to-work laws they don't have anything to do with economics, they have everything to do with politics. [cheers] >> what they are really talking about is giving you the right to work for less money. >> bill: but governor rick snyder says he will sign the right-to-work measure tomorrow. he joins us now from lansing, the state capitol. so what do you say to the president, governor, who says this you are basically trying to bring down wages for working people in michi
, whatever you want to say the death of kim jong-il last december. that they are doing this test to further their own national security interests and, one of those interests is to have a robust, i would argue, nuclear deterrent against the united states. now, i would also add that they are more than willing to negotiate about that. i don't think it's inevitable that north korea would have nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles aimed at the united states but i do think they intend to try to accomplish that and this launch is a step, probably an early step, in terms of the developing that capability. jon: well the u.n., the u.s., seoul, said if you launch the missile it will be very provocative act. it could bring on new sanctions. i thought we were sanctioning everything we could in north korea. are we not? >> no, no. again a lot of new techniques have been applied developing new sanctions to iran. one of the methods to apply u.n. and e.u. sanctions of iran was to study the economy of iran. look for have anotherabilities in their financial system and their trade system and that kind of approach h
obviously make the entire region much more unstable. jon: and for those who wondered whether kim jong-un had staying power as leader of north korea, he just bought himself a whole lot of time in that job, didn't he? >> well i think he showed that the capability of the north koreans has been underestimated and i think you're right. this will be a political boost for him but let's be clear. this rocket-testing program and the work with iran have been going on for decades and they have had some notable failures but each failure tells them something and each success tells them something. if they can put a payload into orbit which we concede they have apparently done, in effect they're well on the way to putting a nuclear payload anywhere on the planet. jon: two members of the original axis of evil still working together. ambassador john bolton, thank you. >> thank you. jenna: we're going to turn to some news a little closer to home now. we're following some major developments in michigan after governor rick snyder signed two bills into law making michigan the nation's 24th right it work state. n
for the second time since kim jong-un took power. and these are brand-new pictures from the capital in a clear display of propaganda there. the white house is far less jovial, calling the launch a threat to regional security. nbc's ian williams is live for us. he is watching the developments from beijing. ian, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, lynn. and yes, the north koreans have once again defied international warnings and launched what they describe as a rocket carrying a satellite into orbit, but which the u.s. and most outsiders regard as a thinly disguised test of a ballistic missile. now, the rocket was fired this morning shortly before 10:00 a.m. local time. it went on a trajectory over the japanese island of okinawa and quickly provoked expressions of anger and outrage from japan and korea, which convened meetings of security officials. the u.s. described it as a provocative act threatening regional security. now, north korea, for their part, quickly said that it was a success, that the satellite is in orbit, unlike a test earlier this year when the rocket burned up on l
such launch under new leader kim jong-un. the surprise launch happened last night after north korea indicated it was having technical problems that could take weeks to resolve. fooled us. korea state tv claims the launch was successful, delivering a "peaceful satellite" in orbit. however, the u.s. and south korea believe it was another attempt by the north koreans to improve their long-range missile capabilities. >>> now to the ongoing violence in syria. in a major diplomatic shift for the united states, the obama administration is now formally recognizing the syrian rebels in an effort to put an end to president bashar al assad's rule. president obama made the announcement in an interview with abc news just hours before a meeting of syrian opposition leaders and their international allies in morocco. >> we've made a decision that the syrian opposition coalition is now inclusive enough, is reflective and representative enough of the syrian population that we consider them the legitimate representative of the syrian people in opposition to the assad regime, and so we will provide them recognit
it this time, greg? >> reporter: all means a lot to the new young leader kim jong-un. it is meant to mark the first anniversary of the death of his father, kim jong-il and mark the end of the year which is supposed to show the impoverished nation is on its way to be strong and prosperous. we're seeing pongyang manage the message more than usual domestically and internationally. my contacts say this country could very well call the launch successful whatever happens. secretary of state hillary clinton is in europe this week at a meeting in nato in brussels. her message is pretty clear. it wants north korea to stop this. if this missile works, bill, the range could be over 6,000 miles. that would put whatever it is launching in the payload in the range of los angeles. bill: greg palkot, watching that out of london. six minutes past. >> this is not north korea's first attempt at this. since 1998 the country has conducted four long-range missile tests. all of them failed out over the ocean. in that time u.s. sources estimate that north korea has developed over 800 medium-range missiles. a num
at home. good morning to you, again, martha. we're watching the second launch attempt since kim jong-un took over after his father's death a year ago. the last try failed. here is the head of the u.s. pacific command keeping a watch on this. >> we're approaching once again a potential violation of a u.n. security council resolution and we encourage and the leadership in north korea to consider what they're doing here and the implications on the overall security environment own the careen peninsula as well as in asia. martha: molly henneberg is live. north koreans may have run into a snag with this launch plan which may be biding some time. what can you tell us about it? >> reporter: martha, a weather snag. snow may have slowed north korea's efforts to put the missile together on the launch pad although the latest satellite pictures suggest it may be ready for liftoff if they decide to go ahead with it on monday. it appears all three parts of the rocket are mounted on the launch pad. north korea has tried four times since 1998 to launch a three stage rocket successfully but have been
did see that you were not judged as the most sexy man a live at kim jong-un does. >>neil: this is a tough energy and now have you shortened it. in your get do you think a deal will be made? >>guest: i do. i'm not too worried about the parliamentary procedure because you can all override that but it does lend urge answer to it. i find it hard to believe we are going to push everything over this cliff just -- i think the markets will react. you know we more about that, than i do. without that we are staying at things and seeing businesses and early sell of stocks to get money and dividends and taking the money and run now. what i would like to see, and why mean to be too partisan when i say this but i am clearly partisan, why not do what ronald reagan did? why not do what public pick -- bill clinton did, call the men and women over to the oval office. i would like to see, look, we are going to sit here until midnight and we will lay things out and we will be able to come out and stand before the american people and say we have reached an agreement. the approval ratings woul
away from the anniversary of the death of kim jong-il. he died last year december 17th. so kim jong-un, his son in control, wanted to commemorate that, and also 2012 is a very crucial year for north korea. it is the send tenry of the country's founder. the one in april failed, but it was crucial because it was within this year. so north korea really wanted to get it done before the end of the year. >> paula hancocks, thank you for that. >>> 36 after the hour. a maryland health official is confirming a second person has died there in the fungal meningitis outbreak linked to the tainted steroid injections. the patient died in november and had been reportedly receiving treatment. nationwide now 590 people have been infected. 37 people have died. >>> four players involved in the new orleans saints bounty scandal have had their punishments overturned by paul tabliabue. tabliabue who investigated a second round of appeals calling the october suspensions handed down by current commissioner roger goodell selective and inconsistent. takibliabue places the bulk of e blame on the coaches in hi
. the founder, kim jong-sun was born 100 years ago that day. if they do go ahead it will, of course, cause an international row. it's really an attempt to test its missiles to see if they could reach the u.s. if the launch is successful, north korea could deliver intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the u.s. mainland within a couple of years. pyongyang will face sanctions. the test also comes at a defensive time for both south korea and japan who hold elections this month. now, the rocket is planned to be fired along the west coast of the korean peninsula towards the philippines, and there are u.s. naval vessels in the vicinity to track any potential launch. back to you, megyn. megyn: david piper, thank you. >>> is the united states about to lose its status as the world's only superpower? ambassador john bolton on a new warning for america and what it means for our security. >>> plus, a judge already infamous for sexting shirtless photos of himself has now touched off a new controversy, this time involving a woman who was appearing in his courtroom. >>> and as we monitor
for the young leader, kim jong-un, to consolidate power and make north korea still more relevant to north korea's presidential elections which will be held next wednesday. because the north had announced technical glitches earlier this week and extended the launch window to the 2 th of the -- 29th of the month, the timing caught the world offguard but could not dodge strong criticism. south korea for one lashed out, of course, calling it a violation of u.n. security council resolutions. and china, north korea's long-time ally, also expressed regret launch calling on the state to abide by u.n. resolutions. now u.n. security council diplomats have also set up an emergency meeting today at the request of the u.s. and japan. back to you. >> all right. thanks for that. >>> the senior fellow at the school of international studies at the technological university. thanks for joining us. what does this test do today? what's the impact on regional securit security? >> short term, i don't think the impact is going to be particularly severe. in some ways it's been priced in. and for once, north korea's roc
a nuclear warhead. but this morning, it is clearer than ever that north korea's new leader, kim jong-un, will continue his father's legacy of pursuing the technology. despite those harsh sanctions. >>> let's get the other top stories from josh. >> good morning to both of you and all of you. we're beginning with an abc news exclusive interview with president obama. we have learned the president and house speaker john boehner have traded new proposal affecting every american's wallets, specifically whether our taxes go up at year's end. jake tapper has the new details. >> reporter: president obama minced no words in an exclusive interview with abc's barbara walters. >> taxes are going to go up one way or another. and i think the key is to make sure that taxes go up on high-end individuals, like you and me, barbara. we can afford it. >> reporter: the president told barbara walters, he remains optimistic. >> are we going to go over the fiscal cliff? >> i'm pretty confident that republicans would not hold middle-class taxes hostage to try to protect taxes for high-income individuals. >> r
, kim jong-un, would pick a different path than his father, that he would be more moderate. i think still there's possibilities of dialogue. i'm not sure when. i think he did this for domestic reasons. the last missile launch failed. he only has one year in leadership. he wants to show his people that despite their economic problems, they have military and missile technolo technology, that they're a major power in space, militarilmilita buttress themselves with the north korean military. it was mainly a domestic shot he took, but also he said to the world, you have to deal with me. i'm a major player. >> so it's for domestic audience largely here. should the united states and should others be worried this launch could mean there's a capability to hit the western coast of the united states? is that a concern what actually was accomplished here beyond the politi politics? >> it was a violation of missile launches, number one. so there will be action by the security council. i don't think they have the capability to reach the united states right now, but obviously, their missile techno
the fireworks and sure enough, they had great timing there in north korea. kim jong-un probably did this to honor his father whose death is this coming when i read the white house statement, i read, oh, wait, didn't i write this in 2006, because it's basically the same language that america has been use not guilty its foreign policy with north korea for years. >> brian: that rocket is just the technology from the '60s, the soviet era '60s, just a little juiced up. >> for us, looking at it, it is a concern because if they do get better technology and if they're rockets reach one of our allies or even all the way across the pacific to us, that obviously is a major problem. but this looks different from inside north korea with state television. this is a big deal to them. it means a lot. >> gretchen: we saw them celebrating. something that wasn't celebrated was the mob action that was going on in michigan yesterday with these protests about the state becoming a right to work state and a lot of people who support the unions were against this. it was interesting because president obama w
